Music Review: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds (2011)

And you will know by listening to High Flying Birds that Noel Gallagher was the heart and soul of Oasis. Every word you can use to describe Oasis’ music, you can use to describe High Flying Birds, and comparisons are warranted because the rest of Oasis (Noel’s backing band: Brother Liam and Party) released a forgettable album earlier this year. Beady Eye’s debut was a pointless stomp to prove a point; Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds is an album of slow-cooked songs for Oasis fans. The songs are lively and likable, and clearly, Noel Gallagher has the songwriting skills, a voice richer than his brother’s, and songs to play before an audience. There’s a heavy 80s pop vibe on some of this Brit Rock material, and you can believe Noel when he sings that he’d shoot a hole into the sun if he had a gun. It’s High Flying Birds‘ next album that you’ll be looking forward to while chuckling at Beady Eye’s attempts at becoming bigger than the Guv’nor.

RATING: 3/5

    Shit! I had no idea this was out. If it’s even half as good as Oasis, I will be a very happy man! Will definitely check this out. Thank you for the review.
